Program Highlights

Our Lady of the Assumption in Lynnfield offers a passion for academic excellence, a strong Catholic faith, and a commitment to success in all aspects of student life. OLA is fortunate to have a group of extremely talented faculty who prepare each and every student to reach his or her full potential scholastically, socially and spiritually. OLA offers a loving and caring school community that fosters the love of God in all areas of daily school life. The school also offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities that include drama, track, cross country, basketball, cheerleading, band, choir, newspaper and after school clubs. The Extended Day Program offers flexibility for all families. The facility includes a beautiful art room, library and technology room, and the program has expanded to include full-day preschool for 3-year-olds. Most recently, the addition of a Resource Room has allowed OLA to offer a student support team that identifies a student’s need for additional support, including academic, behavioral, emotional and/or other problems which may interfere with a student’s ability to obtain a well-rounded education. By implementing an intervention strategy to create a Student Support Plan, OLA strives to create a positive and successful program which uses these techniques in a small group or one-on-one setting to benefit all.


“We are so happy with the education our boys are receiving at OLA. The friends, families, faculty, and focus on faith combine to make a great atmosphere for our children to grow.”
